Novak Djokovic in Tears After Losing in First Round at Rio Olympics

Novak Djokovic lost in the opening round of the men’s singles tournament at the Rio Olympics. Juan Martin Del Potro beat Djokovic in straight sets (7-6, 7-6) in a match that left both players in tears afterwards. 

For Del Potro, they were tears of joy. Not so much for Djokovic who really wanted to win a gold medal, probably the only thing he hasn’t won in his career.
